The last few weeks

It's been a few busy weeks!

#wiggydiggy is riding without training wheels!  We  took him in to get a bike that actually fits him a few weeks ago.  His hand-me-down bike from his cousin was too big and too heavy for him to control.
This boy took off on his new bike before Dad could even put the training wheels away!  So proud of him.

He also attended a tennis camp last week and LOVED IT.  So excited to take regular classes this fall.

He had swim lessons this month as well.  A great report card too!  We are going to have him repeat the class one more time before moving up.  He's the youngest in his class so I think a little more practice won't hurt.

A lost photo from the North Hills Fire.  Thankfully no structures were lost.

We finally put their sandbox out!  The boys have a blast playing back there.  Only took us three months (face palm)

The rubber tiles help #biggywigs keep his balance on the rocks.
Now we just need to rip out that AstroTurf and put down some pretty tile.....maybe next spring.

#biggywigs - 15 Months

#biggywigs | 15 Months

15 Months on the 15th!

Eating ice cubes was the best solution to your teething pain.

nicknames | monkey, a rhyme of your name, Baby

weight | At your allergist appt last month, you were 29 pounds.  So maybe 30 now?

size | 24 Months clothes, size 5 shoes, size 6 diapers (your weight is for size 5, but they just aren't wide enough for your tush!)

sleep | Bedtime is 7.  You normally sleep until 6 AM or so.  School only allows you to take one nap - you average 2 hours.  At home you take 2 naps that total 3 or more hours.

eats |  You do NOT like many foods.  What?!  I make sure you get a yogurt every morning and a veggies pouch with dinner.  I serve you what we are eating, but you are super picky.  UGH.  You LOVE spaghetti sauce (but not the noodles) and all fruit.
loves | 'Reading' books to yourself.  Playing outside, following big brother around, and stealing my snacks.

dislikes | Getting your diaper changed, having an item taken away from you, being over tired.

firsts | You are starting to wake up dry!  YAY!!  I have high hopes we can potty train you around 2.  You also are cutting 8 teeth.  And yes, we are all as miserable as you.  You sign 'All Done', 'More', and 'Please'.  You blow kisses and bye-bye.  You don't have many words - Dada, and All Done are your two main, but you babble constantly.  Just this week you also had your first and second bloody nose.  :(

Momma | Nursing came to an end right around 14 months.  I had to travel out of state for a week so I wanted you done with nursing before I left.  It broke my heart.  I wasn't ready to be done, but you transitioned seamlessly.  You don't drink milk (neither does big brother! ha) and just love to drink water out of a camelbak or 360 cup.  I love that you still want me to read stories and rock you before bed.  I love the time I snuggle you after you've fallen asleep.

You are growing so fast!!  I can't believe you have 8 teeth coming in!  You are so smart.  You love to sit down with your shapes and sorting cubes and figure everything out.  It's such a joy to watch your mind work.  I love you to the moon and back baby.  Forever and ever.

Daddy | You are 15 months old and are continuing to grow like a weed.  You are cutting 8 teeth at the moment are an incredible trooper given how much discomfort you are experiencing.  I love your smile and how happy you are when I get home from work!  I love hearing you chitter chatter.  I love watching you play with your big brother.  You are getting around so well and soon you will be out running around with your big brother!  You love water and your bathtimes with Momma.  You love being read Brown bear-Brown bear!  I love you so much son and I can’t wait to see you grow this month!
